Tuesday Trivia

............ Did you know?...........

Josephine Clofullia, the most famous bearded lady of all time, and an attraction in P.T. Barnaum's side show in the nineteenth century, had a beard six inches ling when she was only sixteen.  (hmmm  I wonder if we were in some way related.... just sayin'!....)

Louis Doberman, a nineteenth century German tax collector, became unpopular with his fellow citizens.  To protect himself during his tax collection visits, he bred fierce dogs now called Doberman pinschers.

In the early nineteenth century, many members of congress came to sessions wearing knives in their belts.  (hmmmm, not a bad idea actually.)

The first paper money to appear in the North America was printed on playing cards.  It was done in 1685 by the French colonial government in Canada.
